from the ceo of deloitte on the meeting. take a listen. >> it was more an education, a discussion and i was actually pretty happy to see business at the table being able to engage in important policy issues. there was no pressure or direction in terms of what positions to take or not take. >> and that's important because there are some competing visions out here. you have the president pushing for his plan but republicans up on capitol hill and some democrats want to make sure that before there's any kind of major amnesty program or registration with some probation period on the pathway to citizenship, there's a lot more border security and enforcement of existing immigration laws. melissa? back to you. melissa: peter barnes, thanks so much for that report. now turning to our "money" power panel to weighn on how the president's economic agenda would be affected by immigration reform, with me is christian dorsey, economic policy institute and mercedes slap for former spokesperson for president george w. bush and steve camerota, center for immigration studies. what do you think about this

happens to others. >> yes, that is true. i showed up in this country, mit was kind enough to educate me and i went on to start a public company. the existing company has thousands of employees. over a billion dollars revenue in a little over a decade. every person i employees probably 10 other people that are employed by partners at other companies. so it makes no sense to spend hundreds of thousands educating these kids and then forcing them to go back home. liz: you and i have spoken before about this. if somebody's getting a college degree here, you should stamp the green card right there upon their graduation, put it on the diploma and say stay here, we are your friend if you want to start a business. think of your own experience, think of google, you look at them and say think of how many people they now higher. yahoo was founded by immigrant kids. these are real opportunities for this nation, what are we doing wrong, what should we be doing to get it right? >> we have to make these kids will come. if you walk through the halls of any graduate program, in the engineering school, mo

awayal edmonton by kicking educated immigrants who create jobs for the rest of us out of the country. >> the united states has benefitted from the fact that capable people, whether you call that smart or whatever world you use, have wanted to come to the united states, whether it's south america, asia, europe, we have been a magnet for talent. and that's partly why, with higher defense budget, medical budget, why we can continue to be such an example. it's part of why our universities are so strong. and yet our immigration system makes it very hard for those people to come in. so somebody's being offered a job here for over $100,000, there's other jobs created around that job. you don't want to discourage a company from having to put that job -- >> do we discourage them? >> absolutely. >> how? >> you could be a student at uc, berkeley, foreign born, get this wonderful subsidized education, microsoft offers you a job for over $100,000 a year, and we have to stay if the country will keep you. and most those students are told they can't stay, get out of the united states. >> they take t
, indiscrim nat cuts to things like education and training, national security will cost us jobs and it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks who are out there still looking for work. the good news is this doesn't have to happen. for all the drama and disagreements that we've had over the past two years, democrats and republicans have still been able to come together and cut the deficit by more than 2.5 trillion dollars through a mix of spending cuts and higher rates on taxes for the wealthy. so a balanced approach has achieved more than 2.5 trillion dollars in deficit reduction. that's more than halfway towards the $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists and elected officials from both parties believe is required to stabilize our debt, so we've made progress. i still believe we can finish the job with a balanced mix of spending cuts and more tax reform. the proposals that i put forward during the fiscal cliff negotiations in discussions with speaker boehner and others are still very much on the ta
in government, why they are good policies, good principals, to help people. i talked a lot today about education, about empowering parents to make choices so we can save kids who we're going to lose from nonperforming schools. i talked about how we've got working families struggling to get through the month. how do we help them? we help by growing an economy. we help them by giving them the tools to go about their daily life, to manage their affairs, to reduce healthcare costs, to remove some of the costly taxes coming from obamacare on healthcare. there are a lot of things we can do to help families and that's what i talked about today. really making life work again for so many millions of americans who need relief. >> many republicans say the party has a serious messaging problem. your ideas may be right but you can't get the message through. listen to bobby jindal on the 25th of january. >> we've got to stop being the stupid party. i'm serious, it's time for a new republican party that talks like adults. >> so many republicans say you're getting the stuffing beaten out of you on messaging fro
? >> diana, i will pick up. i would assume some of these loans are for higher education? >> absolutely. we are seeing it for education. but the line we are hearing from the banks, especially here at wells fargo, is that people are spending it more quote responsibly. they want it get home improvements done, get things fixed, pay for education. may also pay down other debt they accumulated. >> all right, thank you very much. >>> gold prices closing right now. sharon epperson is following that for us. >> closing around 1667 an ounce, you flow, gold has been under a very tight trading range since the beginning of the year. only about a $20 range per day. today it is only $9. we have seen low volumes and tight ranges recently. that's part of the reason why with less volatility, the cme group is cutting margins. not just for gold but for silver, and plat yum. we are also keeping an eye on platinum and palladium. speculators are getting in there and will be hard hit if prices can come down. back to you. >> sharon, thank you very much. >>> coming up, winter storm nemo powering through the northeas
